Allison grew up in MN and has always been around animals via her grandmother's farm, the riding stables, or her family's own menagerie of critters. While in MN, she got her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science from the University of MN- Twin Cities as well as her Associates in Veterinary Technology from the MN School of Business.
After graduating from Tech school, Allison moved out to CO to work in Glenwood Springs. She has teched at a couple of different clinics in the Valley, and as time has worn on, she has migrated here to the Valley Vet to be closer to home as well as give her body a break from the demands of full-time tech work (though she still jumps in whenever needed).
When not at work, Allison spends a ton of time maintaining her hobby farm, but if she gets a moment, she enjoys hiking with her dogs, horseback riding, and showing both dogs and horses. She also enjoys cross-stitch, baking, and relaxing since it's so rare to have to time to do that.
